ACCORDING to the 11,373 people who voted in a recent JD Sports poll, WBO world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker might as well pack his bags and book himself on the next plane back to New Zealand.

Parker, they believe, has only a 2% chance of beating Anthony Joshua, the IBF and WBA world heavyweight champion, when the pair meet in Cardiff next Saturday (March 31). Even scarier, he is apparently less capable of beating Anthony Joshua, 20-0 (20), than Conor McGregor, Rocky Balboa and The Rock if they were to find themselves in the same unenviable position.
